Advance your knowledge of food and nutrition science by undertaking an honours degree at Deakin.
Designed for students with a strong undergraduate academic record, the honours year combines coursework and an original piece of research under the guidance of a supervisor. You will gain an understanding of research methods and design as well as experience in project planning and implementation.
Examples of previous honours research pieces include:
- Dietary sources and sodium content of food provided to pre-school aged children in childcare centres.
- Does diet quality matter in women who have had gestational diabetes?
- Does a healthy lifestyle score predict cardiometabolic risk?
- International household food providers trust in the food supply.
Studying this course lets you dive deeper into a food and nutrition topic of interest. You will also be able to apply to study postgraduate studies by research.
Fees and charges
Fee paying place - International
A fee paying place is one for which the University does not receive any Government funding. As such, students enrolled in these places are required to contribute the full cost of their course.
Fees for international students apply to persons living in Australia with Temporary Resident status, provided that there is no limitation on study and persons living abroad who are not Australian citizens and do not have Permanent Resident status in Australia.
The actual course fee charged by Deakin University, is based on the course and the study load being undertaken. The annual fee above is based on eight credit points (which equals one Equivalent Full Time Study Load - EFTSL). If your study load for the year is less than or more than eight credit points, your fees will be adjusted accordingly. To calculate the fee for each unit, take the applicable course fee above, divide it by eight, then multiply it by the credit point of the unit you are studying. To find the credit point and EFTSL value of each unit, go to the Handbook Unit Search.
